Beautiful Women On Bombay Beach

One of my favorite locations to photograph beautiful women. This time I was shooting from the nose of a World War II B-25 bomber for the Palm Springs Air Museum. Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea.

My Rotating Beacon Hat Works!

Wearing that red rotating beacon on my hat always works to bring them right to my camera! Actually this is a really fun airplane to fly in and you can do that right after Christmas from Tuesday December 26th through that weekend.
 
The Palm Springs Air Museum World War II D-Day C-47 makes for a very historic ride too. This airplane actually flew during the Berlin Airlift. I have personally flown in it a number of times and each time it was just amazing. It is only $195 per person. Money very well spent for a “bucket list” opportunity. Call the Air Museum to make your reservation at 760-778-6262. You really will be happy you did! Thanks!

Inside Outside

I was on the inside shooting from the outside while I was shooting from the inside. Santa’s visit, flying around the Palm Springs area for the Palm Springs Air Museum. This World War II D-Day C-47 is actually a veteran of the Berlin Airlift 1948 – 1949.


How I Video Santa

Told ya’ I was out for the day shooting Santa flying his C-47! More over this coming weekend too, Santa will be flying at the Palm Springs Air Museum!

 


Training At 88

From fitness and bodybuilding pros to everyday people, I must say that the video series I have been doing with seniors for Palm Springs Fitness Center have been just wonderful. Thanks!


Xtine The Photo From the BTS Video

My Bombay Beach photo shoot at the Salton Sea with model Xtine. Yesterday I shared a behind the scenes video of her posing here at this spot. This is one of the photos from that “take”.

The Sun was intense and almost directly behind her. My lighting was a Broncolor white beauty dish held by my assistant pointed 45 degrees to her from her right. It was powered by the Broncolor 1200L Move pack. I like the beauty dish out there to withstand the winds and for the power.

The camera is my Hasselblad H4D-40 with the Hasselblad HC 100mm f/2.2 lens. Without question my favorite Hasselblad lens.

Fitness Journey

A thought from IFBB Professional figure competitor and fitness icon Ava Cowan from her magazine photo shoot at Palm Springs Fitness Center

– The feeling of contentment to me is one of the most satisfying feelings in life. I can usually feel this to be present when I have arrived at and have become a higher version of myself, within my life’s journey, and fitness is a part of that journey.

– I thought to look up the definition. And after combing through several variations of the definition, this is a portion of one that resonated with me the most.

“Contentment is a mental or emotional state of satisfaction maybe drawn from being at ease in one’s situation, body and mind. Colloquially speaking, contentment could be a state of having accepted one’s situation and is a milder and more tentative form of happiness.”

– When I looked at this photograph last night, that is the exact emotion I see emitting through my eyes. I absolutely looked past the weight training aspect of the image. A moment in time and there I was… content.

– Contentment on my fitness journey in life captured in the moment.
